It's hard to believe but Benjamin turned 5 this past Thursday!! My mom was here to help celebrate and he had fun opening presents and going to Mellow Mushroom for lunch. He couldn't believe people were calling him to wish him happy birthday and sending presents. He got a little to used to it though as the next day he wondered where some more presents were. :) He had a b-day party on Sat. at the bowling alley with just a few friends (the perfect amount I think), and Uncle Nathan came in for that too! If a new baby weren't on the way I think I'd be taking this a bit harder. :) Happy Birthday big guy!

So we're back from the Big Island! I'm so glad the tsunami didn't hit as they thought it would, so we could have a fabulous week to relax! We stayed at the Hilton Waikaloa and loved it- it's huge! We spent a few days just relaxing there. They have a great lagoon that is ocean fed and had lots of fish and some sea turtles that we swam with. We took a day to drive around the island and see it all- amazing! We couldn't believe how one side of the island could be hot and desert-like while the other side could be so rainy and cold on the same day. We went to Volcanoes Nat. Park and stopped to take a walk to a waterfall. We spent a day with my Aunt Kim, her husband David, and friend Pam. They took us to some local spots in Kona- had pizza on the beach, walked to see some lava tubes, to the City of Refuge, and the Painted Church. So all and all- a trip we'll never forget!
